And last, but by no means least, a video of mini Melbourne by Nathan Kaso.
A short tilt-shift time-lapse film featuring my home town, the city of Melbourne, Australia. This piece is 10 months in the making and features a range of different events and festivals held in the city throughout the 2011-2012.
Nathan takes birds-eye footage of everyday life with time-lapse technology to create this wonderful animation of Melbourne.
